I created a video in iMovie that's about 3 minutes long. I need to export it as a WMV format due to most other people using PCs. But when it exports, it only exports about 30 seconds of the video. Why is this? And how can I get it to export the entire 3 minute video?

Thanks to anyone who has any advice.

I take it you have the free version of Flip4Mac? You'll need to buy the upgrade to more than 30 seconds.

Why not give your friends the movie as a Quicktime file and let them get Quicktime for free from Apple?

I agree with MightyGem. No sense in propagating the mess that is WMV. If they don't have or want Quicktime, recommend VLC. It will play pretty much anything.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
